The Powys region
The cottage is situated on our family's hill farm. And visitors are welcome to explore our lakes and woodland and moorland walks. There are thousands of acres of adjacent moorland rich in wildlife.
Llandrindod Wells (7 miles) A Victorian spa town, now the administrative centre for the region. During August it puts on a most enjoyable week-long Victorian Festival. It has many shops and Somerfield and Aldi supermarkets. There is a street market on Fridays and many of the shops close half day on Wednesday.
Brecon (20 miles) Pleasant market town on the River Usk at the foot of the Brecon Beacons. Many shops, a cinema and two museums, HQ of Royal Welsh Borderers, cathedral. A good centre for exploring the national park. Brecon hosts a jazz festival in July each year.
Hay-on-Wye (20 miles) Charming border town on the banks of the Wye. With narrow streets is has lots of book, antique and craft shops. It has the biggest second hand bookshop in the world. Well worth a visit. Every year it sports a week-long literary festival which lots of famous authors attend.
Rhayader (19 miles) Name means waterfall and is adjacent to the Elan Valley dams. Small market town (market on Fridays) with a few shops but important cross-roads in this sparsely populated area. Gigrin Red Kite feeding centre is just outside town.
Hereford (35 miles) Main shopping city for locals. Market day Wednesday. It has lots of shops, plenty of parking and a good history to explore including a cathedral and the famous 1300 AD Mappa Mundi world map now housed in its own museum. Another museum traces the history of cider-making which was so important to the town.
Builth Wells, (4miles), the crossroad of mid Wales was always a major crossing over the River Wye. Quaint, it is a market town with no supermarket it has excellent food shops amongst others. "Such a friendly place to shop" is a comment we often hear on the campsite.
There's a cinema, swimming pool, cottage hospital, library and a very fine 18th century river bridge. Every year during July it hosts the Royal Welsh Show, one of the largest agricultural shows in Europe.
Market day is Monday and many of the shops close half day on Wednesday.

"Cosy and comfortable with great views"
We booked this cottage as it was in a great area for mountain biking, walking and other activities and we were looking for a comfortable base with a nice view, we weren't disappointed. The previous review was posted after we booked and we were concerned but we did not have any issues, the whole place was very clean.
There was a lovely welcome pack consisting of homemade produce from the farm, which was delicious and some nice homemade soaps too. The bed was comfortable and the shower was great, comfy sofas and well equiped kitchen, there was nice back yard so everything we wanted.
The family who live at the farm nearby are all really friendly and helpful and we would recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to explore or relax in Wales.
Thank you so much for a lovely review, it was great having you to stay and I hope we see you both again soon!

Basic it is, but clean it was not!!! Had to wash the kitchen untensils before we used them!
Someone elses pants left in the wardrobe. Blood in the freezer, seals on fridge disgusting!
Deffo would not reccomended!
I am very grateful for feedback from our guests, good and bad. Although I am happy to say this is the only rotten feedback we have ever been given. It has been really difficult to find a way of responding to this awful review with out sounding defensive.
I would have liked the opportunity to rectify and problems when you were here, I spoke to you during the week and asked if everything was well.
I feel your comments a bit unfair, the fridge was old, but it was clean. It has now been replaced as I agree, it was a bit on the old side!! There was no Blood in the freezer. I did find the knickers though, terrible oversight and I take full responsibility for not checking the wardrobes after my cleaner had visited, I am sorry, I wouldn't like to find other peoples smalls in my drawers. The kitchen utensils are also clean and tidy - I feel you might have felt a bit sore after I refused your request for a full refund, after you had returned home at the end of your holiday.
I hope you might have a look through our photos now as, although Moat House was basic, we decided after your stay to give it a big overhaul, new paint, new beds, curtains and even new garden. I think you'll agree the house is looking beautiful. If you did return I would be happy to give it to you at a reduced rate to try and mend any bad feelings you may have.
